The Ottawa Senators are coming off a 5-2 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday hoping to win consecutive games for the first time this season. The Sens are trying to create momentum, as are the Florida Panthers. While Ottawa had themselves a nice finish to their season last year, and were hoping for that to continue this season. No such luck yet.
Daniel Alfredsson just scored his 1,000th point, and Sergei Gonchar just played his 1,000th game. So it’s been milestone month for Ottawa. Now all we need is for Uncle Jack to come back and coach them to the Stanley Cup! Alfredsson leads the Sens in goals, assists and points. Also, Alex Kovalev seems to be coming out of his deep summer sleep. But then again, tonight is another night.
The Panthers meanwhile are up and down, and most likely still feeling the sting of the Colton Orr interference goal against the Leafs. They better get that out of their minds cause there’s other things to worry about. Like scoring. We can’t win scoring one goal per game. The lines are going to be changed. According to George Richards here’s the possibilities:
Chris Higgins-Shawn Matthias- ?-Steve Bernier
Cory Stillman-Marty Reasoner-Radek Dvorak
Steven Reinprecht-Mike Santorelli-Michael Frolik not sure who’s taking his place.
